The other day we looked at a storage space for our belongings - a warehouse belonging to a health food shop. At the same time we picked up some of their empty cardboard boxes, which were then piled up in our kitchen. Only then I noticed the nice Chinese writing and the dragon design on them. Voilà!

Really like the abstract quality and color in this painting.

I love what you do with colour and design. You are so brave. This is beautiful. My son has his entire office decorated with calligraphy from Korea. It's so refreshing, just hand painted black letters on white.

Super painting. I wish I could be there to help you pack, and I so wish you could come to New York.

Barbara, I'd love to come to New York, as you can well believe! How exciting all that must be for you. I wish you all the success you deserve!!!!
Asian calligraphie is so very beautiful - each letter or word a delicate little painting in itself.
